Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya DVD Announced!

Bandai has (finally) announced that they will be releasing the first DVD of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya on May 29th. I know this will make a lot of folks very happy.

They announced the title in a
video clip featuring three cute actresses dressed as characters from the series who 'invade' Bandai Entertainment's headquarters in CA and "liberate" the debut date for the first DVD in the series.

The highly anticipated Haruhi Suzumiya anime has been a huge hit in Japan where it has developed a cult following. An awful lot of fans have been e-mailing in asking us when it's coming out, and now we know!

We've contacted Bandai for SKU info and will have it up for
pre-order the minute they provide us with the info.

Series Synopsis:

On the first day of high school a beautiful girl named Haruhi Suzumiya introduces herself as having "no interest in ordinary humans". She asks for any aliens, time travelers, sliders or espers to join her. Watching her weird behaviour is Kyon a boy who sits in front of Haruhi and is the only person who talks to her. Commenting on Haruhi's joining every club in school and then quitting Kyon unwittingly gives Haruhi an idea to start her own after school club. Thereafter Kyon and several others find themselves literally dragged into the Save our world by Overloading it with fun Suzumiya Haruhi's Brigade (the S.O.S. Brigade for short).
